Fiber Cement Siding Cost

By Karen Lawson
Fiber Cement Siding Cost

Fiber cement siding is a siding that has grown dramatically in popularity in recent years. The versatility available in fiber cement siding gives you many textures, styles, shades and thicknesses to choose from. It is more expensive than traditional vinyl siding, which is another very popular siding; however there is a difference in the look and quality of fiber cement siding.

Finding the Best Fiber Cement Siding Cost

The average cost of siding, according to a national survey, is $10-$11 per square foot, if you are hiring a contractor. Fiber cement siding comes with a 50-year guarantee, so the cost doesn't seem so steep when you think of it that way. You do have some other things to consider outside of just the "siding" itself. If the outside wall has been subject to water or any other kind of damage that is going to have to be repaired before siding can be hung. The cost will vary depending on the extent of the damages and time it takes to fix it.

Shopping around and getting several estimates before settling on one is a smart decision. You may even let the 2nd or 3rd contractor know that you are shopping around and they may try to give an extra discount. Most contractors will supply the fiber cement siding themselves; however if you are able to get some wholesale at a better price, you may see if you can just pay a contractor for labor. Another possible way for discounts would be to advertise for the company once their job is complete. Especially if you are residing your business, the publicity you can give them would be worth their money to give you a discount.
